    The Spratly Islands are an unremarkable scattering of reefs and sandbars in the South China Sea. But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict?

    "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

    I spend a lot of time in SE Asia and I have personally observed swarms of Chinese descend like locusts on tourist areas and I've seen them trample the coral with scant regard for the damage they cause. They're pumping lots of money into areas of SE Asia to construct mini Chinese areas. It really is scary. When I talk to the locals, they all whisper their discontent under their breath but also concede that they need their money.

    Now China going to war with Philippines. Us whites should go there , and build them houses , schools ๐Ÿซ a nice library ๐Ÿ“š, and plant trees ๐ŸŒฒ. A garden , bring a lot of Bees ๐Ÿ , like wouldnโ€™t it be fun to help them ? Weโ€™d need to ship ๐Ÿšข in a lot of dirt for garden. Like flower boxes ๐Ÿ“ฆ. Because if it rained , then it would turn into salt ๐Ÿง‚ dirt. So it we need some cement. Lets ask if we could go and help. Bring books ๐Ÿ“š lots of books. Computer ๐Ÿ’ป for them. And a doctor ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ. Medical supplies ,medicine , maybe 1 dog ๐Ÿ•. Or a cat ๐Ÿฑ. For them to play with. America coming to protect you. Trump is our president. Heโ€™s loves you too. Bye ๐Ÿ‘‹. Lets fix that ship ๐Ÿšข. Lets give them. Like a Cruz ship ๐Ÿšข. A really big ship ๐Ÿšข. Where they can grow gardens on top and flowers too. The Philippines DONT TAKE CARE OF THEM. WHY. I FERL SORRY FOR THEM. If they protect all the Philippines why does the government send them food and a place to actually live if theyโ€™re protecting the whole entire nation we can do something about this I think

    China needs south China sea. Courths told China they have no claim. China steals plans in USA for advance high tech to use against USA. South China sea needs to remain open for neighboring countries. USA is needed to keep it open. If trade between nations are stopped due to china. All will loose their freedoms. France, Germany, United Kindom is aware. Vietnam, Phillipines, India, Malaysia, Brueni, Japan, Taiwan and Australia is well aware of this. China will back down. China counting on the weak minded Citizens and Liberal Demorats. All these Countries need our help. Korea is a puppet of China.

    The Chinese communist party sacrifice their own people to enrich themselves and ensure their personal comforts, no different from the old dynasties. They bully poorer and weaker countries. They bumped a small fishing boat and intentionally left fisher folks save their own lives. A captain of a Chinese fishing vessel killed a Figian who complained about inhumane working conditions and with the Chinese government tried to lie about it. China has nuclear weapons while ASEAN adhere to a non-nuclear weapons agreement. China does not adhere to the UN tribunal decisions. China is a a permanent member of UN with veto powers. With that China must be removed as a UN member, otherwise this will be a precedence for other powerful countries to abuse their might.

    China claims everything and whose people will literally eat everything. In a nutshell, Communist China is the enemy of everyone.

    So where are the environmentalist ? Are they doing anything to stop these destruction? Or they are also afraid of China! Maybe they just don't care because they think it doesn't affect them anyway.

    Chinese leaders have been cheating the world since long time ago in the
    history of mankind turning something or some region from being undisputed to
    being disputed. ย One of the most serious
    cases is the 9-dash line. In 1947, they declared that China has sovereignty
    over most of South China Sea. They knew that ii was not true but purposely chose
    to do so at the time when China was still weak and backward and therefore whatever
    they declared does not cause strong reactions from the world. They left this
    declaration there as a basis for their future generations to later use it to turn
    this undisputed region into a disputed one. What can the world learn from this
    lesion? Whenever a country deals with China it must be very careful and
    examining all future consequences which may be 10, 100 or even thousand years
    later. For now, all countries must be united to stop China from taking the South China Sea.
